Thank you Patti
My thoughts are with you all during this very difficult time. JJ always had a ready smile and kind words whenever I saw him. I appreciated his special friendship with Alexa through the years in Stewartville and beyond. She spoke of him and their friendship fondly. May your memories of him carry you forward through the trying times ahead.
Thank you Renelle, I am glad him and Alexa had the friendship they had. She had a special place in his heart.
Rue and I so so sorry for your loss our though and prayers are with you and your family
